P 355, Miyamoto, Winter '09 1 Responses to Student Questions • Look at the updated syllabus. •2 nd edition of the textbook is probably 90% the same as the 1 st edition, but the 10% difference may be important on some quizzes or exams. We assume that students have read the material in the 2 nd edition. • 1 copy of the 2 nd edition has been ordered by Odegaard library – it will arrive in 2 weeks. Coglabs: • Option 1: If you have a 1 st edition of the textbook, you can buy a registration code. Francis, G., & Neath, I. (2006). Coglab online with access code, version 2.0 . • Option 2: Several students can share a Coglabs account Next: Revised Grading

P 355, Miyamoto, Winter '09 3 Questions Regarding Grading • You will often be asked to do a lab before you have heard a lecture or read about the relevant experiments. Do not worry about this. The labs will be graded very leniently. You need to show that you know what happened in the experiment, but not the theory behind it. • I grade on a curve but the curve is based on the overall performance of the class, so I can’t tell you before the end of the quarter what you will need to score to get a particular grade. o Example: Typical class mean final grade = 3.2 Number of 4.0’s = 3 Number of flunk (< 0.7) = 0 o Example: Very good class mean final grade = 3.4 Number of 4.0’s = 5 Number of flunk (< 0.7) = 0

P 355, Miyamoto, Winter '09 4 More Questions • It’s ok to go to a different section from the one you are enrolled in, BUT if we run out of room in a section, we will restricted attendance to people who are actually enrolled in the section. • I have been giving add codes to students on the waiting list for Psych 355 as soon as other students drop the course.
